Ingredients

1 onions, finely chopped 200 g
2 carrots, cut into 3-4 mm thick rounds 200 g
8 button (white) mushrooms, quartered 110 g
1/2 cup chicken broth 125 mL
3 tbsp raisins 30 g
2 tbsp canola oil 30 mL
8 chicken drumsticks 900 g
1 1/2 cup canned tomatoes (diced) 380 g
2 tsp herbes de Provence 2 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

Put the serving dish in the oven at the lowest setting to keep the chicken warm after its initial sautéing.

Method

  1. Prepare the vegetables : Finely chop the onion, slice the carrots into thin rounds (3-4 mm thick), cut the mushrooms into quarters. Soak the raisins in a small cup of lukewarm water. Set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat, then add the chicken drumsticks and sauté thoroughly on each side until golden, about 7-8 min. Take the chicken pieces out of the pan then set them aside on the warmed serving plate in the oven.
  3. Add the onion to the pan, then sauté 2-3 min. Add the carrots and mushrooms then cook 2-3 min. Add the raisins and broth. Scrape the bottom of the pan thoroughly as the liquid comes to a boil.
  4. Put the chicken back into the pan, then add the diced tomatoes and herbs. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover, then simmer 20-25 min until the chicken is tender. Serve.

This is probably one of those recipes that the success or lack thereof is directly related to the quality of the ingredients. I used a Club House La Grille grinder of "Provencal" seasoning and found that the dish was very flavourful - and I doubt that I even used the full amount called for, as it's hard to measure out of a grinder. However, if the herb blend is at all stale, I can see that being a major downer, as the seasoning is what makes or breaks this recipe.

I found that sauteing the legs in canola on medium for the stated time did not produce a browned exterior to the legs (no skin). Otherwise it was a good, inexpensive, healthy dish. Next time, might try it with a spiced/herbed tomato sauce instead of just diced tomato w/Provence - not enough flavour.
